  • 2 slices of bread (preferably white)
  • 2-3 slices of cooked ham (like the stuff for sandwiches)
  • Salt/Pepper~Optional
  • Mustard~Optional
  • Chives to serve~Optional


  1. To toast the bread, place the slices on a baking sheet or rack and bake for 5 minutes. Turn each slice and bake for another 2 minutes, until toasted and golden~brown

  2. If using, gently brush half of the now toasted bread with the mustard.

  3. Add a slice of ham to each, and sprinkle with the cheese.

  4. Top with another piece of toasted bread. Slather the tops with the remaining cheese, and bake the sandwiches for 5 minutes.

  5. Serve hot, and if you like, use a dash of the salt/pepper as a mild flavouring. Also if using, sprinkle the chives on top.
